Had a great walk at Fraser Foreshore Park in SE Burnaby, BC, this morning. Photographed a Black-headed Grosbeak, a bird I don’t see very often. Also both Anna’s and Rufous Hummingbirds, a Brown-headed Cowbird grooming, and more.
Red-tailed Hawk above our townhouse in SE Burnaby, BC, this afternoon. Crows were not taking kindly to its presence. . .
A couple of dollar-store visitors to my campsite at Miracle Beach Provincial Park on Vancouver Island the other day.
A buck or two. . . 😉
A visit to Nitobe Memorial Garden at UBC in Vancouver, BC, the other day. We try to get out there at least once a year.
We’ve been doing a bunch of staycationing.
Enjoyed a gorgeous sunny day that was not too hot to do a Vancouver Harbour cruise.
I took an overnight solo camping trip up the Sea to Sky highway the other day. Photographed a bunch of wildlife.
Sea Lions at Porteau Cove. They’ve hanging out there for weeks if not months. . .
Barn Swallow at Porteau Cove. There were several young looking ones appearing to test the breeze.
Brown-headed Cowbird at Porteau Cove.
Red-breasted Sapsucker at Alice Lake Provincial Park
Douglas Squirrel at Alice Lake
Raven at Alice Lake. It seemed to follow me about halfway around the lake before heading off. . .
I’m thinking Audubon’s Warbler. . . There was a bunch of them flitting about at Alice Lake Provincial Park near Squamish, BC. I took over a hundred shots over the course of an hour to get a few decent ones. . .
A stop at Shannon Falls on the Sea to Sky highway north of Vancouver, BC.
I walked Fraser Foreshore Park in SE Burnaby, BC, this morning for several hours, seeing Bald Eagles on nests, Anna’s and Rufous Hummingbirds, a Brown-headed Cowbird, Northern Flickers making out, and more. . .
Female Red-winged Blackbird
Male Red-winged Blackbird
Northern Flickers in love. . . 🙂
Wasn’t broadcasting this year’s batch of Barred Owlets, but someone spilled the beans and the photographers are sprouting like mushrooms on a warm day after a gentle rain. . .
A gentle reminder: folks, we get excited, but please, take a few shots and move along, eh? Don’t camp out for hours. . .
Today I saw a photographer trip on another photographer’s tripod and nearly go sliding down a ravine.
Admire nature, but respect it, too.
BTW, these were shot handheld with a wee Canon SX730 pocket zoom.
